Daily Life of the Nubians
by
Robert Steven Bianchi
Description:
Until recently little was known about ancient Nubia and day-to-day lives of the Nubian people aside from knowing it was a civilization contemporary with, distinct from, and living under the shadow of Ancient Egypt. Nubia existed from about 3500-300 BCE, close to 3,000 years. Thanks to recent massive archeological surveys, we now have a much clearer picture of Nubian civilization, what they ate, how they dressed, how they cared for their dead, their military triumphs and defeats, where their cities were built, and what they looked like. Of course they underwent dramatic changes over time, and these are noted where appropriate. Though often confused with the Ethiopians of Greek lore, little doubt remains that Nubians were in fact black African peoples, and their civilization has been claimed by many as proof of a sophisticated and ancient black African society.

My comments: Some of the comments above got it wrong,nubia existed before 3500 b.c.
and lasted up until today still,not up to 300b.c.
THE last part seems to get it right.
THE time line suggest that it existed before 3500 b.c. but the book deals with ancient nubia and not nubia after 350 a.d. but it looks like a detailed work dealing with daily life in ancient nubia.
